In the third episode of the Whose Knowledge? Podcast Series: “On the question of representation and consent: reflections from Bangalore after a Wikipedia edit-a-thon”, we sat and have a talk with Shobha SV from Co Media Lab, and Padmini from Design Beku, with the intention of finding out more about their experience participating in #VisibleWikiWomen.
But, as the conversation took place, we didn’t only talk about that. This brave duo hit the nail on the head by bringing up questions about women's representation online, consent when taking photos, how visibility in some cases can be problematic, how much control does women have over their personal images online, and more.
Making women visible on the Internet is inevitably intertwined with these issues, and we are really glad to make room to reflect on that.
